Arrive in Hanoi

When you arrive at the Noi Bai International airport you'll be met at the baggage claim by our friendly guide. Just look for the sign with our Asia Tour Advisor logo and your name. We'll get you to your hotel and see that you're comfortable, plus we'll give you an introduction to the city at the same time. Then the rest of the day is yours to settle in, relax, and explore the area.

Hanoi is Vietnam’s capital city and home to seven million people. Traditional and refined with French colonial architecture, tree-lined boulevards, scenic lakes and a bustling Old Quarter, Hanoi has a sophisticated charm. Observe locals practicing Tai Chi by the lake, with barbers and food vendors plying their sidewalk trade.

Hanoi – Halong Bay

We'll pick you up in Hanoi by 8:00am and drive through the verdant Red River Delta to make our way to the famous UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay. You'll board a luxury junk ship for an overnight cruise-- while you relax on-board you can marvel at the incredible limestone karsts that jut out of the sea and the thousands of jungle-covered islands that seem to float on the waves. The turquoise waters of the Gulf of Tonkin swirl around hidden grottoes and ancient caves to create an enchanting, timeless world.

We'll serve you a fresh seafood lunch while you sit back and relax as you enjoy the incredible view with a drink in your hand. We'll take you to a traditional fishing village where the locals have created an entire town on the decks of their boats, then you can explore Tien Ong Cave before returning to the cruise for cocktails, canapés, and a spectacular sunset. End your day with a romantic, candlelit dinner.

Halong Bay – Hanoi - Sapa

Begin the day with a Tai Chi class on deck in the early morning mist or just admire the beautiful scenery as the sun rises over the azure waters. Choose between an excursion to a secluded island with a sandy beach for a swim or join the chef for a cooking demonstration to learn more about Vietnamese cuisine. Enjoy a leisurely brunch while your junk cruises Halong Bay, passing islets and caves as you make your way back to the dock.
Your driver will meet you when you disembark and transfer you to back to Hanoi.

Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel at 7:00pm and take you to the Hanoi Railway Station. We'll get you situated in an air-conditioned, 4-berth cabin with soft sleepers for an over-night train to Lao Cai. You will arrive at Lao Cai at about 6:00am the next day.

Sapa Tour

When you arrive in Lao Cai at 6:00am we will already be there waiting to pick you up. Just look for the tour guide with a sign that has your name on it. We'll take either a car or van up into the beautiful misty mountains of Northern Vietnam as we drive to Sapa. You'll be taken to a restaurant and hotel where you can get cleaned up, refreshed, and get something to eat. After lunch we'll visit Cat Cat Village, where a Black H'mong tribe lives, then go to see a beautiful, natural waterfall in the mountains. Afterwards, if you're interested you can also visit the impressive hydroelectric power station built by the French. You'll have dinner back in the town of Sapa and have the evening to explore the village on your own.

The former French hill station of Sapa is characterized by rocky mountain ridges, terraced rice paddies and lush green valleys. Sapa is located in the picturesque Hoang Lien Son mountain range on the border with China. Colorful hill tribe minorities inhabit the surrounding mountains, each with their own distinctive style of dress. From early childhood girls learn to grow and weave hemp, dye cloth, and decorate the family's clothing with traditional embroidery motifs.

Sapa Tour - Hanoi

You'll have your breakfast in the hotel and then a guide will be there by 9:00am to take you on your trekking day. We'll walk about 15 kilometers and in the course of the day you'll get to pass cascading waterfalls, terraced rice fields, a sweeping river valley, and truly spectacular mountain vistas. We'll also visit three different villages that belong to the Black H'mong, Dzay, and Red Dzao people. You can choose to either share a meal with a local family in one of the minority villages or have a lunch brought for you from the hotel to have a picnic with a beautiful view. A van or bus will be waiting for you at the last village to take you back to Sapa to collect your luggage. From there we can pick you up either at 4:30pm or 6:00pm, depending on train times and your own preferences, to go to Lao Cai and catch the over-night train back to Hanoi.

Hanoi City Tour

Early in the morning, arrive in Hanoi, the guide pick you up and transfer you to take a daily room for relaxing and shower.

You'll have your breakfast at the hotel and then the local tour guide will pick you up to take you into the capital city of Vietnam. Hanoi is over 1,000 years old and during your day tour you'll get to explore many of its fascinating cultural and historical sites. You'll visit the imposing Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum where the preserved body of “Uncle Ho” has been laid to rest, the delicate One Pillar Pagoda, Tran Quoc Temple and the Quan Thanh Pagoda.
After lunch you can go to the Temple of Literature where you'll get to see ancient Vietnamese relics, then take a cyclo tour in 1 hour through the bustling and exciting Old Quarter to explore marketplace shops and foods. You'll end your day with a show at the water puppet theater - a beautifully unique cultural performance from northern Vietnam.

Hanoi Departure

You have free time in the morning until your private car arrives to take you to the airport for your next destination.

I booked a trip to Sapa and a 3day cruise in Halong Bay. The trip was really Great and amazing. Hiking in ricefield in Sapa with local guide. On third day in Sapa i went to Fansipan by new cablecar by my own. The view and temples were very good. Azalea cruiseship in Halong Bay was fantastic with excellent food friendly staff and interesting program. The travel agents from Asiatour Advisor are very fast friendly and flexible.

Wonderful trip planned by Hong
Reviewed On: Dec 05, 2019PollyannaAustralia

My hubby and I celebrated our 10th year wedding anniversary in Hanoi. This whole trip was planned by Hong that we enjoyed lots, except some events. We stayed in Hanoi for a few days and travelled to Sapa by train.

At Sapa, we visited the Sunday market and did a short trek. This market is nice to visit. You will see many things that you can’t see in Singapore market, eye opening. The trekking is not enjoyable as we only travelled on the path that is for car/motorcycles, not much of sightseeing. Farmstay is not enjoyable too.
We enjoyed our 3D2N Era cruise stay at Ha Long Bay. The services provided by the crews are amazing.

Overall, we enjoyed the trip and want to give special thanks to Hong for ensuring all our activities are carried out smoothly and to come to hotel to pick us up to the train station at night. She really will go an extra mile to make sure all our travel needs are provided. Thumbs up to Hong.

Trip was well coordinated and communication was very smooth. We had alot of flexibility in our trip and we managed to slot in extra 3hr Fansipan cable car tour before leaving Sapa. Sapa guide was very experienced and well verse in English which made communication easy. Very helpful and good coordination. Special arrangements for shower after check out and coming back from Sapa Hike.
Prices are comparable to those found in Hanoi Old Quarters. All transport were provided til we leave for airport.
Thumbs up, Highly recommended

We had a wonderful experience with Asia Tour Advisors. I normally organize my own trip itinerary but Vietnam was a bit challenging with so many dodgy looking websites and not knowing how to get from one place to another, I contacted Asia Tour Advisor and everything was handled so efficiently and professionally. Tham, our tour coordinator was very quick to reply any of my queries on email and met all my specific requirements I wanted for the trip. She contacted me through out the trip to ensure everything was all going ok and I couldn’t thank her enough for making our trip smooth and stress free.
Mr Hong who met us on Hanoi was so helpful as well and Sang our tour guide for trekking and Sapa was so knowledgeable and we really enjoyed our time with her.
I would highly recommend this company for anyone who wants a hassle free holiday and will definitely be using them in the future again.
